. if it does, peggy noonan will probably say it will this be a victory worth having. shannon: it will be something that is water down. >> america fundamentally is not just saying that we are worried about their health care. they are mad at washington. they are angry at the way the system is running. the president could have come out with enough good will across the country and said that "i have said to change washington and i will take a step back and come back to you in october with a bill that will actually meet the principles that i laid out." shannon: then there is the issue of people receiving unsolicited e-mails. major garrett got into it with the press secretary yesterday about who is on these lists, how are the e-mails being tracked. i don't know if they answer this very well. how do they handle that pr battle because people don't like to think that the white house is tracking them were getting their e-mail in some way that maybe is not appropriate. >> imagine it was three years ago and all of a sudden people across the country started getting e-mails from karl rove.

reading the bill. as peggy noonan said if people don't trust the government for some reason they don't trust the government that much and they can understand what is in front of them. if it's say 1,000 pages of legislative they say i don't trust you. i don't have confidence in you so i say no. that's what the american people have done. >> there is all the criticism of the death panel discussion. why not? why not write a bill put it out there, let everybody see what is in it and then let the media turn it loose. >> a political calculation they made they want to do it different than the clintons did it. that's what the clintons did. disaster and they say let congress own it. that's a disaster. no way to do that is not going to create vacuum for people to make it up. i think that -- i mean i think the administration is to blame and the media is to blame. both. >> the stories about people caught in the healthcare mess the current healthcare mess only started popping out in the last few days.

will they resolve it? beats me. gregg: the message is also a problem. peggy noonan wrote today that this thing is too complicated to comprehend, and the president sounds like a wall. marketplace exchange, single payer, and paul krug and on the liberal side in his opinion says that he agrees. the president sounds like a dry technocrat with speeches written by a computer. has this model of the message? >> yes. first of all, he talked about how we were going to reduce health-care spending, private and public, and it would be deficit-neutral. the budget office says that is not so. then he said we would make it good for you, it will be health insurance reform, better for the person who already has insurance, for -- although we saw in the town hall meeting that people do not believe that. one controversy after another, and we will deal with another one on fox news sunday, talking about this. for all the talk about death panels, this is currently being used by the veterans administration for end of life counseling with veterans, either young people returning after terrible injuries from iraq and afgh

in this kind of ridiculous behavior. >> let any give you a counterpoint to that. this is what peggy noonan wrote, john. she's defending these groups showing up saying what town hall meetings represent is a feeling of rebellion, an uprising against change they don't believe in. the democratic response has been stunningly crude and aggressive. it has been to attack. have we been left with this aggravated situation? >> i think democrats do underestimate the anger out there. independents are breaking with the obama administration on deficit spends and growth of big government. that's what some of these folks are reacting to. the real wake-up call needs to be in the republican party where the fringe is blurring with the base and there's a trickledown. some of the influential figures out there who keep stirring the pot. hate is a cheap tool but it can be hell in a democracy. that's what is happening here. >> leslie, you're a republican here. many republicans have conceded rush limbaugh has become fairly or unfairly like it or not the most influential voice in the party right now. you heard him c
that the republicans need to do more to speak out. peggy noonan in the "wall street journal" called the democratic response stunningly crude. specific reference to things said by speaker pelosi. there is also criticism when it comes to the democrats. we called a number of lawmakers this afternoon and tonight and not one of them would agree to come on this show and talk to us about why they were canceling town hall meetings. how they felt about these brawls. they wouldn't discuss it. do the democrats need to step up a little bit too on their side? >> exactly. senator mccaskill did a few days ago. more of them need to step up. i don't know why people feel intimidated by this sort of stuff on either side, whether it's republicans or democrats. this is -- this is very discouraging for people who want to see the democracy work. we've had two presidents in a row now, george w. bush and barack obama, come to washington and promise to change, make this our discourse. make it more civil. it just gets worse. we saw last night, erica, in the "200 day report card." . there is a tremendous polarization taking
to our lady of perpetual help basilica. of course, that library reminds me of the story that peggy noonan told us yesterday. and that is the story of how ted kennedy called ronald reagan and asked for help with the jfk library. it wasn't endowed. they needed to raise money. and ron ad reagan immediately jumped on an opportunity. jon meacham to go help ted kennedy. and he spoke eloquently of jfk's leadership. and what it meant not only to him but to an entire generation of politicians and those two men who really -- ideologically could not be further apart became good friends who greatly respected each other. >> i think -- we always admire in others those things which we hope are our own virtues. i think president reagan saw a great showman, investment to the word. great political actor. and someone who was committed to his ideology in the way that president reagan was committed to his. >> we just saw a shot of cia director leon panetta. jon, you are a historian, pulitzer prize winning historian, maybe too early to say this but we look back perhaps this time period, 50 years from now, 100

peggy noonan writes in today's "wall street journal." she said democrats are looking dres des pratt, specifically the white house. >> yeah. >> they thought to think about backing off. the president should cull kaul in his troops and his congress and announce a rethinking. there are too many different bills, they're all a thousand pages long, no one has time to read them, nobody know what is's going on, and who knows what will be in the final one, the public is agitated and in crisis. is she right? >> when i first started to read that story, i thought she was talking tact republicans because the gop made it clear months ago that their strategy would be, in the words of mr. demint, to try to create a waterloo and create a distraction, rather than be constructive and come to the table with ideas. i think we're seeing that bear itself out at these town hall meetings, and these groups that are being disrupt rif funded by right-wing groups and insurance companies. it's clear what the strategy is. >> the president was hired to fix the economy, wolf. he thought not to turn our country into
that are arguing about these events. host: peggy noonan writes about it and says that the leftist spear and the liberal commentary it say that the town hall meetings were not authentic. they say the insurance companies sponsored these events. she says you cannot lead people to leave their homes and go to these meetings with a congressman unless they are engaged to the point passion. what tends to educate people the most is the idea of loss, loss of money, carter and loss of autonomy, loss of the few things that work and a great, sweeping away of those ideals. guest: it is an interesting point. congress usually acts or does not act based on the way of what they are hearing from back home. it will be interesting to see how lawmakers, when they come back in the fall, whether they are skittish about doing something about health care or they are eager to embrace this major challenge. it will be interesting to see the elkridge that some of these members will bring back -- it will be interesting to see the outrage of these numbers will bring back. caller: good morning. i lived in monroe county
